About

About:

Intraarticular injections involve the direct delivery of medication into a joint space. This method is used to manage various joint-related conditions, offering localized treatment and potentially reducing systemic side effects. The substances injected into the joint space can serve several purposes:

  • Pain relive 

  • Decrease inflammation 

  • improve joint lubrication and cushioning, reducing pain and improving mobility.

  • Treatment of Joint Disorders


What can be injected?
  • Corticosteroids: These medications, such as cortisone, can help reduce inflammation and pain in the joint.

  • Hyaluronic Acid: Hyaluronic acid injections are used to improve joint lubrication, particularly in cases of osteoarthritis.

  • Local Anesthetics: Sometimes used in combination with other medications to provide immediate pain relief.

  • Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP): PRP injections involve the use of concentrated platelets from the patient's blood, which may promote healing and reduce inflammation in the joint.


Information:
  • Frequency: Depends on the severity of symptoms and medication that has been injected; can be done every 3 months or more often as needed.

  • Technique: Injected directly into joint space in aseptic conditions.

  • Pain Level: Minimum

  • Last: 3 months or longer; depends on the severity of conditions.
